Thanks a lot guys.
I talked to Matt on the phone^ and he recommended that shop above for me to go to.
It turned out to be a gasket on the throttle body heater plate. Looks like I'm going to be getting it towed and have someone make me a gasket with rtv sealant or whatever they use for coolant. Hopefully they're able to.
In about an hour I had two people willing to help me out. Thanks a lot guys. Seriously.

Eurowise is a great place....the owner mike is a cool guy.

Sh!t happens man no worries about the bad gasket. You've got out numbers if you need anything!

Just finished my car! I was originally going to bypass the heater plate and connect the two hoses together. However I couldn't find a connector that was the correct size.
For some reason the BMW dealership had the heater plate gasket in stock. Lucky me!!
So I got back after 3 20 min trips to find parts. Installed the gasket, bled the system and it seemed to be all good!
I'm incredibly impressed with myself for doing this on the side of the road with limited tools and very grateful I had some back up here on e46f just in case I needed it.
Thanks again guys!

Guys, I need some help. I woke up this morning and my key remotes did not work. I could not get it to lock, unlock or open the trunk. Both key remotes did not work. I tried to reprogram but nothing. It was working fine yesterday and then both of them don't work today?!?!? WTF?

Any ideas?
